Arts Conservatory


The Hapeville Arts Conservatory is a project of Hapeville First United Methodist Church to grow the arts and artists in the cities of Hapeville, East Point, College Park, and Atlanta.
To achieve this, we partner with local arts professionals and provide them space and support they need to practice their art. We work with local schools to provide low-cost after-school programs, with home school providers to offer extra circular art engagement and with adults to play an active role in the arts. Our goal is to produce plays, recitals, concerts, and entertainment with the students and adults who participate in our programs.

Join the Hapevie Arts Conservatory in the production if the Jungle Book.   
River Arts Productions is collaborating with The Hapeville Arts Conservatory at the Hapeville First United Methodist Church to create this unique and vital contribution to the children of our community.
